Body Politics

Rod and Cane Society Book 3

Body Politics by Cara Bristol is the third book in the Rod and Cane Society series. This book explores the relationship between Stephanie Gordon and Mark DeLuca and the concept of domestic discipline. I’ve found that the books can be read independently, but it does help to have read the past books.

A friend sets feminist Stephanie Gordon with Mark DeLuca on a blind date. Stephanie thinks the evening will be a waste of time. Mark sees beneath the surface of Stephanie and tries to change the feminist’s mind regarding domestic discipline.

The author did a great job with the characters. Both Mark and Stephanie were very life like and have unlimited chemistry together. The story line was one that peeked my interest. The story was fabulous up until the ending. I did like that Mark did allow Stephanie to spank him as a way to show his trustworthiness. I was disappointed in Mark and his attitude regarding a work issue with Stephanie. The impression Mark gives was that he really never took Stephanie and her feminist ideals seriously.

Overall, this is an enjoyable book (even with the ending). I can’t wait to read more from this series and from Cara Bristol.

Book Blurb for Body Politics

Feminist Stephanie Gordon knows the instant she meets blind date Mark DeLuca it’s going to be a wasted evening. Sure the deputy chief of police is criminally sexy, but he's arrogant, domineering and sexist. Thank goodness after the date ends, she'll never have to see him again. A member of the Rod and Cane Society, an organization of men who discipline their women by spanking, Mark DeLuca is attracted to Stephanie like a paddle to a well-rounded ass. He sees beneath the shield of feminist militancy to the soft, sensitive woman she tries to hide. When she storms away in a snit, the chase is on. Can a man who spanks convince a diehard feminist her true strength lies in submission?
